Rose injury increases Sixers' chances, but doesn't guarantee anything


Link to Sunday column:

Here is a portion of the column:

Lou Williams, the Sixers’ leading scorer with a 14.9-point average, went just 1-for-6 and had nine points. He’s 8-for-34 in four games against the Bulls this year.

The Sixers must get more from Williams if they’re going to win — with or without Rose.

The Sixers also didn’t end up with enough of the 50-50 balls they must have to help combat the rebounding deficit. That’s just hustle and determination.

It’ll also be interesting to see if Collins starts Evan Turner in Game 2 on Tuesday night. Collins replaced starter Jodie Meeks (0-for-1 shooting) with Turner to begin the second half and Meeks didn’t return until the final 3½ minutes.
